I was surprised to find that I think I prefer the AUD version of Set II, I just feel it has better depth but I definitely am giving the DP release some serious listening. I sort of feel the mix on it hides Phil a little bit too. Interested to see if they continue this strategy for 80's releases when a sterile SBD needs a little something extra.

I think I prefer the straight AUD as well. On the other hand, we didn't have the SBD of most of set II before, so in that sense part of this DP was "new."
Weir is especially buried in the mix.

I really dig it. But then again I don' tolerate AUDs well and those who do may feel it's missing some 'ambient' feel of the crowd, but for me this is a better way to listen to an above average 1980 show. The Scarlet>Fire really is quite sweet and there's a "Ramble" that needs more attention plus a very good (especially for early 80s) PITB. I'm pretty happy w/this release both in sound and performance of show.
